Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Star Jen Shah Arrested On Federal Fraud Charges
Jen might want to reach out to Teresa Giudice for tips on how to survive the clink without your Botox routine and fake eyelashes on hand, as she has been hit with federal charges stemming from allegations she conspired to commit wire fraud and laundered money connected to a purported telemarketing scam, according to federal prosecutors.
Jen was arrested and taken into federal custody on Tuesday in Salt Lake City, Utah on the indictment which came down from a Manhattan federal court.
Jen and her “first assistant,” Stuart Smith, 43, conspired to defraud older and computer illiterate people by operating multi-state telemarketing and in-person sales teams that would sell “essentially non-existent” services and fight consumer efforts to obtain refunds.
The alleged scam began in 2012 and continued until 2021, according to the Justice Department.
An indictment filed in the Southern District of New York reads as, “Shah and Smith undertook significant efforts to conceal their roles in the Business Opportunity Scheme. For example, Shah and Smith among other things, incorporated their business entities using third parties’ names.”
Shah’s Instagram account links to a site that lists three businesses with their own websites: JXA Fashion, Shah Beauty and Shah Lashes.
